You can fill their basket with fun things to do that will get them outside now that Spring is here.

1. Skipping Rope - Most kids still like to skip, and with the snow melting away, it might be a great time to get those little bodies moving again after the long winter, and get some fresh air and exercise. You can get brightly colored skipping ropes that look good in the Easter basket.

2. Sidewalk Chalk - Get ready for another season of hop scotch, or for the "artist" in the familyEaster gift ideas.
